I think the world stopped for a moment
When those curtains were unraveled.
The sun, the moon, the graciousness of the universe
Laid bare in front of my slaving eyes,
I saw this planet at its finest
From the absolute divergent to my home.
And that night I could not sleep
Knowing that the world outside, for once,
Was more beautiful than my fabricated dreams.
I corroborated that my mind wouldn’t forget
How much I felt in that fraction of a second,
And I captured so many emotions
Than just the acceptance of my fate.
I lied awake knowing that even the night falters,
Sometimes the lurking demons succumb to the twilight.
